You might already know Nick and Sarah. They're the talented artists behind Exaggerface face painting, whom I got a chance to work with earlier in the year at a birthday party. Sarah is also an amazing painter. Oh, and Nick's dad is Santa Claus. Seriously. So you might say the've got it all going for them and that they have an amazing life. Some might even hate them for that. If you're one of those people, you might want to stop reading right now because their family portrait images might just make your head explode.
Sarah was due any day when we shot these images on a crisp November morning. She was a great model and a great sport as I had her romp, stand then sit in the tall grass. Steam rose for the pond behind her, creating a surreal and beautiful landscape. Oh. My. Gosh.
Then Nick and their son, Greyson, got in on the action and the shoot went from being spectacularly beautiful to all-out fun as they ran and played and I tried my best to make my camera keep up.
Nick and Sarah's baby girl was born just a few days after we shot these photos. I feel truly blessed not only to know this awesome family, but to have had the privilege of capturing this beautiful and tender time in their family's life.
